The children of light and darkness battle in this brilliant play by the author of Racing Demon.

The History of Sexuality by Dane Stewart

Five students take a graduate seminar studying the work of revolutionary French philosopher Michel Foucault. As they argue over issues of sexuality, gender, oppression and free will, these theories begin to rupture and spill out into their own lives.
